From
US $1,160

Memorable parts? The whole trip was memorable... Tuscany is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been.

When we booked this trip was described as light to moderate in difficulty however after finishing the tour and talking to the tour operator we were told it was one of the hardest...

The hotel we stayed in was family owned & run but required more travel to get there to/from the airport and to/from the walks. The guides were local which could be good or bad...
